This year, the Met Gala’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. After themes like Punk: Chaos to Couture in 2013 or Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology in 2016, we were little surprised when we found out that the MET gala was focused on just one designer, but Rei Kawakubo’s work definitely deserves a theme of its own. After all, her experimental Comme des Garçons pieces have always been at a crossing between art and couture, which is just what the Met Gala’s all about.
This year, as always, some celebrities took the theme more literally than others. Rihanna, for example, opted for an extravagant Comme des Garçons creation, and Rita Ora went for a red gown inspired by one of the label’s most iconic catwalk looks. For others, the connection to the theme was less explicit, but we spotted many outfits that were outright shocking, in perfect Comme des Garçons style!
